I enjoyed this book. It was a fun thing to listen to on my drive in to work each day. I like Suze and the nicknames that she had for her new stepbrothers. I also thought that she was portrayed realistically as an only child tossed into a sea of new bodies. Suze has to readjust her thinking on family. She now has brothers and all that goes along with that. Suze is also fiercy independant and she must learn to depend on her brothers as well as Father Dom. Father Dom is the principle at her new high school and also a mediator like herself. Father Dom tries to help Suze deal with the ghost that haunts the hallways but Suze refuses to listen to his advice and mediates how she thinks is best. This tends to get her into trouble and forces Jesse, her house ghost, to try and help her. My one real complaint with the book was in the narration. Suze was supposed to have have grown up in New York City and yet the voice that Johanna Parker gave her reminded more more of a girl from the South. So that tended to distract me a bit during my listening. I do look forward to reading more of this series, though I think that I might switch to the print version.
